    Tesla turbine rims on 2g? Opinions?

    Look very similar to 4g eclipse rims...pictured are some on my gst spyder. 18x7.5 IIRC, perfect offset for the 2g flush setup.Turbine designs have a diminishing return for cooking effect due to potential high/low pressure differentials. Brake ducting is far more important and reliable.

    2G Very High Oil Pressure After Rebuild

    Personally I'd your max pressure is t over 90psi at full rpm, I wouldnt worry about it. My suspicion is clearances are tighter amd you're seeing some higher pressure as a result. As long as you don't go insanely high, no harm and enjoy the security of knowing your bearings have plenty of film...

    May not even be a VC issue, I suspect I have a CAS issue, but I'll have to see when I dig into it. PCV issue may be compounding also.

    Aftermarket valve cover...?

    I installed the CAS after the cover, as I did most of this work at the beginning of last year. Once I tear into it I'll try to reply back. That car is on the chopping block for selling/partout as it is.I am running a black top CAS. Hall effect. I've previously run the green top optical with...

    Aftermarket valve cover...?

    Touching back on this. I like the cover, but I have a pretty heavy leak from the passenger rear corner by the CAS. Not sure if it's the valve cover or the CAS itself, haven't had time to dig into it. I know I'm having some crank case ventilation issues, but haven't had time to try my remedy at...

    2G Relocating Stock Side Mount, convince me I'm wrong

    Not worth the effort. The slightly shorter routing would be negated by the potential temperature increase. I'd be trying to cool it down more than shorten routing. Hard pipes would be slightly better, but even that is splitting hairs.Just make sure the core is clean inside, fins are straight...

    Nothing wrong with npr pistons, used them a few times for various builds, including a dsm. They're made well, just inspect them like you would any other.

    First time DSM Owner

    I'd be checking hard on how bad that rust is...I see alot just in the couple pics, and can only imagine what's hiding behind the rocker panels.If the chassis is solid, then move onto spending money on t-belt and engine management etc. But if the chassis is swiss cheese, find a solid shell first.

    Old gas: How bad is it and what to do with it?

    I drove a 2010 crown vic I bought a couple years ago that hadn't run/been started for 6 years. Same gas, fired right up and ran fine. Put 91 non-e in it when I drove it home almost 200 miles, just to be safe, but drove it almost 20mi before that with no issue.My point is, if the tank is sealed...

    420A Dying randomly while driving.

    Have you checked the coil pack? Sounds like an ignition related problem. Usually I'd say this a dead giveaway for a crank sensor going bad, but if your replacement is recent, of decent quality and not already oil fowled (and the wiring isn't oil fowled/shorting) then I'd start looking at the...

    2G 2g gst with auto awd trans?

    Iirc, you can run the awd auto without the t-case and rear driveline and it will function fine, but you may need to have the center diff welded to have it work correctly without burning up the viscous coupler. I'm not versed enough in autos to give you a definitive answer.

    W4A33 front diff in W5M33

    Awesome, thanks Hiroshi! Biggest reason I was curious is the auto front diff is vastly different from the manual, though I have considered seeing if custom work could be done to make it usable.

    W4A33 front diff in W5M33

    2G 6 Bolt Rear Main Seal Dowel Pins

    Try this on most engines and you'll end up with a huge leak. If you remove seal plate pins on a Ford modular, your seal plate can move all over when tightening down the bolts.

    2G 6 Bolt Rear Main Seal Dowel Pins

    They align the seal housing to the block so the seal isn't biased radially and leaks.They're pretty important, if the engine isn't installed in the car and completely hooked up, I'd pull the trans, clutch and FW and redo it.

    2G 4g64 Swap, Model years?

    Partially correct. The DSM head will physically bolt to the 4g64 (or even Evo block) and vice-versa, an Evo/Kia head will bolt to a DSM 4g block. The issue arises when blocking oil drain holes, which IMHO is trivial when doing these swaps. @JayRome may be willing to shed some light on this more...

    Opinions on my cam and head journals

    The head looks fine to me, and the cams can be polished and probably be fine. but if they're stock, it's so easy to find more stock cams in perfect condition, there's no reason not to get different ones or aftermarket.

    2G 4g64 Swap, Model years?

    If this is for a rwd application, I recommend getting any fwd 2.4 block you desire. The Mazda trans is alright, but for real purpose (and torque) you want to use bill hincher's adapter and a Toyota r154 transmission, or a jeep ax15 converted to 2wd with r154 or r150 output shafts.

    Bearing clearance hardware question

    As @jakelandry said, use the hardware you intend to install, otherwise measurements will be different. Arp recommends multiple tq cycles before final torquing anyway.
